Like Abraham, faith in God is reckoned as righteousness. None are righteous in the sense of being without sin.
But "reckoned" by God to be righteous, is that, we aren't righteous, but God reckons us so through our faith.
"For without faith, it is impossible to please him."

"Why do so many people think that the Bible is only inspired at certain points -  and that  THEY are inspired to pick out which points?"
